Hello Community Members,
I’m writing to nominate Volodymyr Chekyrta, @volodymyr.chekyrta, the Mobile Lead at RaccoonGang for Core Contributor Status. Volodymyr has been working as the architectural and product lead for the development of a new set of Open edX mobile applications. These applications were developed by RaccoonGang and have been offered as a contribution to the project. The applications represent a robust alternative to the legacy mobile applications, built on a modern technical core and adopting industry accepted design patterns.
- GitHub - raccoongang/educationx-app-ios: The mobile app for iOS for the Open EdX Platform.
- GitHub - raccoongang/educationx-app-android: The mobile app for Android for the Open EdX Platform.
Volodymyr has also been a key contributor in getting the Mobile Product Working Group off the ground in the last few months.
This nomination is a little different than others because most of Volodymyr’s work has been in repositories outside of the openedx organization. However, assuming that OEP-0064 is accepted, an outcome of that would be to migrate the existing repositories into the openedx organization.
This nomination proposes making Volodymyr a Code Core Contributor on those repositories at the same time they are migrated so development of those applications can continue as it does today without interruption.
The voting period will be two weeks starting today and ending on 7/28.
